“There is but one thing to be done here below: to love Jesus, and to save souls for Him that He may be more loved.” – St. Thérèse of Lisieux

Where I serve

I’m taking a victory lap! Jesus has given me the great gift of serving my home sweet home of George Mason University for this upcoming fall semester as I finish out my degree and graduate in December. I feel so humbled and privileged to get the opportunity to pour into the community that poured into me first during my time in college. I am so stoked to see what Our Lord is going to do in me and through me during my time at Mason, please pray for my team and I as we begin this great new adventure! Roll Patriots!!!

My Story

After my sophomore year of college, I transferred to George Mason University where by God’s Divine Charity, He placed me in front of people who knew how to love and modeled the relentless pursuit of the Father for me. The people who made up the Catholic Patriots community have showed me tangible images of God’s heart and have been a vessel for His radical redemption and transformation in my life. Since then, my life has forever changed and I have experienced a deep desire to serve, honor, and love Jesus with everything that I am. These past couple of years, I have been moved over and over again by the mission of FOCUS and I am so excited to get to enter into that in a brand new way as a full-time missionary! I met Jesus in a whole new way in college and have been so captivated by my life spent in relationship with Him. I can’t wait to be able to walk with students on college campuses as they get to learn the same thing! AMDG!

Your Impact

If I take a look at my life the last couple of years, it is filled to the brim with people who have loved and supported me and ultimately, led me to the feet of Jesus. In this place, I have been radically transformed in a way that has equipped me to serve Him and His Church. It is all thanks to you! Your spiritual and financial support is what allows me to continue to give my life to Jesus as a FOCUS missionary. I am overwhelmed by gratitude to you for joining me on mission this way and I am overjoyed to be able to journey together little by little to the Father’s House!
